Call to Action

  Maybe I am dating myself but when you used to look at those ads in the Yellow Pages you likely saw that they all looked alike and said the same thing. This was especially true with ads for attorneys. “If you’ve been injured in a car accident, call ME!” At that time, investing in a Yellow Pages ad was […]

Is Nursing Your Life’s Purpose?

  When I was 10 years old and at an overnight camp, I was horseback riding and fell off the horse.  Fortunately, I was wearing a helmet, but I still lost consciousness.  When I came to and opened my eyes, I could make out a woman bending over me, all dressed in white with the sun shining behind her, like […]

Life Lessons For Nurses From Yoga

In February, I participated in a “yoga challenge.”  Now, mind you, I am not the yoga type, but as I only recently started practicing it, I found that I absolutely love it. I used to dread exercise, but it’s really true that finding something you like to do makes such a difference.  I don’t necessarily like how I feel while […]

Patient Satisfaction Scores

  I have wanted to write an article on this for a while.  I was surprised to learn that the government has chosen to include patient satisfaction into the mix of hospital reimbursements! Let’s realize that we are dealing with a population (patients) comprised of individuals who are ill to begin with.  When one is ailing, they are distracted by […]

On May 13, 2017, an inmate at the Kane County Jail in Illinois was taken to Delnor Hospital after he ate a jail-issued plastic sandal and drank a liquid cleaner.  He had surgery to remove the plastic and liquid from his stomach and was recovering when the guard left him unshackled after the inmate had used the restroom.

NURSES ARE AGAIN THE MOST TRUSTED PROFESSIONALS

For the 16th consecutive year, the Gallup Poll found that the most trusted professionals are … nurses!!!  Nurses surpassed military officers by 11% and doctors by 17%. I love seeing these statistics because they are true.  Nurses are amazing in that they take care of people’s health, well-being, psycho/social needs and even their property. Interestingly, pharmacists have declined some this […]
